District-Wide School Safety Plan
The Rochester City School District is committed to the safety and preparedness of its students, staff and its visitors. Our District-Wide School Safety Plan is an all-hazards approach to crisis management and focuses on mitigation/prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery procedures.
The District-Wide School Safety Plan is implemented at the time of an emergency at the direction of the Superintendent and/or his staff. "Incident Commanders" (Principal/designee) implement Building Emergency Response Plans when directed by their respective School Chief, Deputy Chief of Teaching and Learning or the Chief Operations Officer. In the absence of direction from Senior Administration, each Building Incident Commander (Principal/designee) is authorized and directed to implement this plan, or take other action as may be, in her or his judgment, necessary to save lives and mitigate the effects of emergencies.
